Leduc 4-H Beef Club

Pipestone Flyer

For the Leduc 4-H Beef Club, January proved to be an eventful month and was filled with preparing for Public Speaking and the beginning of a new year.

Our monthly meeting was held on January 12th at Eidick’s and we discussed Bull Congress, Public Speaking, District Curling, and our community service project. The next event after our meeting was Bull Congress, which was on January 24th at the CRE in Camrose. A number of members from the club went; ranging from juniors to seniors and it was a day filled with new learning experiences.

After Bull Congress came Public Speaking, which was held on January 31st at the Cloverlawn Hall. All of our members did fantastic and in the end we all came out winners! In first place for Juniors was Ashley Tolsma, second place was Kelsen Eidick and third place was Rebekah Knull. In first place for Intermediates it was Cherese Eidick followed by Monika Knull in second and Brianna Tolsma in third. For Seniors, in first place was Tristan Eidick, second place was Cole Dotzlaf and third place was Kassie Wrubleski. Awesome job to those members and also a job well done to everyone else who said their speeches! The club would also like to send out a huge thank you to all of the judges who came and judged for us that day and how much it means to us! Thank you! We would also like to send out another huge thank you to all of the parents that brought food and helped to organize this big day. Thank you!

As we moved into February, the District Curling was also held on February 6 in Calmar and it was a blast! It was a good experience for members to try and everyone had lots of fun! Next in February, our monthly meeting will be held on February 9th and we will be discussing our community service, which will be held on March 6th, and our social event. We hope to have a good month and are looking forward to seeing you support your local 4-H Club!
